Review of the 2006 Yamaha MT-03:
THE MT-03 IN TOURING MODE
Author: WILLIAM LECKIE, 2006-12-19|
I TOOK THE YAMAHA MT-03 ON A 3000 MILE TOUR ROUND EUROPE IN NOVEMBER 2006 AND LOVED IT.
THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE BIKE!|
FIRSTLY LET ME RESPOND TO CRITICS ON THE SO CALLED BAD POINTS.
FIRSTLY THE EXISTING MIRRORS ARE CAPABLE OF BEING EXTENDED USING THE TWO NUTS ON THE MIRRORS ARMS.
SECONDLY THE WIND WHILST NOT THE BEST IT IS NO WORSE AT 60MPH AS IT IS AT 99MPH! I WILL EXPLAIN THIS MORE CLEARLY BELOW.
I TOOK MY MT-03 AT THE END OF NOVEMBER THROUGH FRANCE, LUXENBURGH AND BELGIUM AND BACK TO FRANCE.
RODE WITH ANOTHER GUY ON A HONDA FIRESTORM AND THE MT PERFORMED WELL ON ALL TYPES OF ROADS, WEATHER, SPEED AND MPG. WITH ALL THE ELEMENTS THROWN AT THIS BIKE AND RIDING FOR PERIODS OF 10 HOURS EVERY DAY FOR 9 DAYS WHILST WET, COLD AND WIND SWEPT I NEVER FELT IN TROUBLE AT ANY POINT OF THE TRIP.
GREAT LITTLE MOVER WITH PLENTY OF GUTS GREAT BALANCE AND JUST LOVES BENDS, ROUNDABOUTS AND IS NOT SCARED ON MOTORWAYS. I HAVE ALSO GOT A 54 HONDA VFR VTEC BUT PREFER TAKING THE MT OUT AS IT IS SO VERSATILE.
SO GO ON TRY ONE.
